Hard to Port
One of the exciting things about being a part of the commissioning crew was the shakedown cruise in the North Atlantic in February! Whooee! The Nimitz was a bucking bronc! Stuff sliding around all over the place, walking all over the deck and the lower part of the bulkheads and a good portion of the crew seasick. When we returned to port, walking on solid dry land was a challenge for awhile, too.
